Jahi McMath Continues Federal Lawsuit Against State of California

While the family of Jahi McMath has settled their state court medical malpractice lawsuit, they plan to continue with their federal civil rights lawsuit.


In a new filing this week, the family contends “that the State Court Action did not adjudicate the issue in the current matter and that the two separate death certificates create an issue regarding Jahi McMath’s correct date of death.”


In response, the State of California contends “that as Jahi McMath presently satisfies the criteria for brain death under California Health and Safety Code section 7180, this case is now moot.”
